Splunk App for Jenkins

Splunk Labs
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
Splunk App for Jenkins provides deep insights into your Jenkins master and slave infrastructure, job and build details such as console logs, status, artifacts, and an incredibly efficient way to analyze test results. The app provides out-of-the-box dashboards and search capabilities to enable organizations to run a high performing Jenkins cluster and bring operational intelligence into the software development life cycle.

Splunk App for Jenkins

Splunk App for Jenkins provides deep insights into your Jenkins master and slave infrastructure, job and build details such as console logs, status, artifacts, and an incredibly efficient way to analyze test results. The app provides out-of-the-box dashboards and search capabilities to enable organizations to run a high performing Jenkins cluster and bring operational intelligence into the software development life cycle.

Key Features

  • Different Personas: Enables two modes for different personas. The app nav bar toggles between user mode and admin mode.

  • Admin Feature - Overview: View build status trends and be able to drill down and get details information about any build.
    alt text

  • Admin Feature - Audit Trail: Audit trail feature allows you to see who has logged into your Jenkins system and done any activity like starting/aborting/changing jobs. You can also see what configs have been changed by some user and can view the config xml directly in Splunk. This feature is particularly useful for organization with security and compliance use cases.

  • Admin Feature - Jenkins Health: Splunk Jenkins Apps captures Jenkins internal JVM information as well as keys metrics like queue size, executors and slaves stats, Jenkins master logs, and Jenkins slave stats. All this information is captured in real-time, allowing you to quickly discover hard to find issues and fix them before they become a bottleneck for development teams. No more ssh-ing into Jenkins systems to find issues.

  • Admin Feature - Jenkins Nodes: Analyze all activity on a particular node. View builds executed on a node, view real-time slave logs, build activity across all slaves, and check connection history to find out unstable Jenkins nodes. This feature is extremely helpful in identifying problematic components in a Jenkins cluster and optimizing your team's throughput.

  • User Feature - Test Analysis: If you are a test engineer and spend countless hours looking at test results in Jenkins, you will love this feature. Test Results shows all the failing tests with stack traces, flags regression failures, groups test failures by errors, captures Jenkin's environment variables, and provides nifty filters to find tests with long run times, particular errors, testsuites, etc.

  • User Feature - Job Insights: Display the job status, such as job stage duration, job stage status, stage duration by build number, test status by build and job history.

Step 1. Splunk App Installation

Install on a single instance
1. Download the add-on from Splunkbase.
2. From the Splunk Web home screen, click the gear icon next to Apps.

Configuration for Splunk ITSI Module for Continuous Delivery

Step 1. Define lifecyle_id for your Jenkins data

The Splunk ITSI Module for Continuous Delivery uses the lifecycle_id field to identify which lifecycle is attached to which event. Extraction of the lifecycle_id field depends on each user scenario and user system data capabilities. Some ideas on how to extract lifecycle_id:
1. Lifecycle from release in project management data collector (JIRA)
EVAL-lifecycle_id = fields.fixVersion Example: "Buttercup 1.5"
2. Lifecycle from release in build system (Bamboo, Jenkins)
REPORT-lifecycle_id = lifecycle_id_from_release Example: "Buttercup 1.5"
3. Lifecycle from feature
EVAL-lifecyle_id = branch Example: "feature/foo"
3. Lifecycle from build/test plan, build/test job:
EVAL-lifecyle_id = build_job_plan Example: "UI_TEST_PLAN"
4. Lifecycle from a specific time range
REPORT-lifecycle_id = lifecycle_id_from_timerange Example: "Plan A from 10-01-2016 to 12-31-2016"

Step 2. Check permissions in metadata/default.meta

Make sure you configure configure permissions for prop, transforms, eventtypes, tags,etc. properly.
If you don't care about permission on this app at all, suggested metadata:
export = system
